I live in New Zealand where I bought my ereader. I could not register it as this was not available in New Zealand. I now bought a book from whitcouls, downloaded it via ADE and cannot transfer it onto my reader. What can I do? I have tried to drag and drop it directly but I get a message the media is restricted. I can read the book via ADE, but not my reader. Cheers
The way you describe your problem tells me that it may be because of the
digital rights assigned to the ebook. Publishers and resellers have the
ability to restrict downloads to your PC.
With ADE in Library mode, put your cursor on the title of the ebook. A
small arrow will appear. Put your cursor on that arrow, and a drop-down
menu will appear. In the middle, you'll see the digital permissions
embedded in the ebook, and I'd bet that the one about copying says
'no'.... If this is the case, you can go back to the source and complain.
They might - or might not - be able/willing to do anything about it.
Hope this helps!
